A selection of Lesser Redpoll images whilst I have been trying to photograph the Mealies at The Lodge, lovely little birds that I've had fun in getting shots. The light can be awful under the tree canopy so I had to up the ISO quite a bit so as to capture these flighty little finches. Still its been good practise manually sussing out the best camera settings.
In the above image check out the colours in the crown feathering, and you can see it mixing into the breast feathers too.
This one is showing a more orange toned crown.
Check out the lovely pink hues to this adult bird.
